A new study suggests that getting prostate cancer, doubles your risk of developing dangerous blood clots.

Swedish researchers found men receiving hormone therapy for their cancer were especially vulnerable. But they were not able to pin-point whether the cancer itself, or treatment for it, was actually responsible.

The study can be found in the "Lancet Oncology."
